Cloud vs Colo: 2018 and Beyond, Who Wins? How will IoT impact the data center industry? If you are active in the data center industry in Texas or emerging central states, or looking to become more active, you will want to attend CAPRE’s Fifth Annual Texas Data Center Summit. This two-day premier summit will be held on October 11-12 at Cityplace Events in Dallas and feature 50+ speakers who will offer comprehensive market analysis of the opportunities and challenges. 500+ are expected to attend, including all of the most active developers, investors, capital sources, end-users, public sector executives, engineers and consultants. The summit will feature 13 hours of combined informational panels and networking. Participating end-users will represent the region’s most active public-and-private sector end-user firms.

Expert speakers will discuss trends, patterns, opportunities and challenges, including:

  • Enterprise is going to cloud: What are you seeing and how are you reacting to it?
  • Who will survive and thrive?
  • What has driven the spike in values and increased interest in the sector from an investment standpoint?
  • With the low capitalization rates and high per-square foot/kW sale rates, it implies future rent growth. Are you surprised in the past year or so with decreased vacancy that you haven’t seen a higher increase in rents?
  • Is the general belief that if you aren’t a seller in this environment you will have to scale quickly to stay relevant? Or, can local and regional players still carve out their own niche?
  • What are Google and Amazon offering to clients that might not be offered on premise?
  •   Agility of the cloud coupled with tools: How are cloud solutions making the impossible reality?
  • Migration to the Cloud: How did end-users get over regulatory and compliance challenges?
  •   Is cloud security better than on-premise?
